I really took a shine to this new set having seen so many hummingbirds last year when we were in Minnesota.  I had seen them before on trips to California but it wasn't until we went to the Amish area near Harmony last year that I saw so many so close - when we sat on the deck they were buzzing our heads! 

I shared a card last week using one stamp from this set and another of my cards is on the MFP site but I will show you it here as well.  Both cards were stamped in Memento inks and coloured with Copics.  Some Stickles were also used but you can't see that in the photos!


 
 
 This last card just uses the sentiment from the set.  This one uses the VLVFeb2013 Week 3 sketch and this week's JUGS colours (well as close as I had in pigment inks)  I also used the Dogwood Blossoms  and resist techniques to create the panel. 3 different leaf die cuts were used.
 
 
 
 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:
"Love Script"

 
The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

"Big Cupcake"

  11. Love how you colored your hummingbird in the first card, especially how the tips of his wings are almost translucent, makes his beautiful body stand out! And the blue and orange color combo is so pretty! Your second card has such a tropical feel to me. Your coloring of the hibiscus is so pretty! Your third card is so elegant! Love the beautiful die cuts and the lovely white bow! Beautiful cards!
